  1. That’s great..with the price of fuel the will be a huge waste of taxpayer money..get politics out of the schools..stop the unnecessary holidays and go back to a 9 month school year like we had..kids looked forward to the summer off..let them be kids

The old calendars were based on a agricultural need which no longer exists. Teachers and students who have this kind of schedule express they like these breaks. They still have summer with 8 weeks off. Still plenty of time to go to camp, take family vacations, kids to play and relax. Got most school districts the change is a two week earlier start. I applaude Aiken County to taking this bold step.
